5 Factors to Consider When Purchasing Your Lift Chair
A brown lift chair in the full upright position.Power lift chairs are the perfect piece of furniture for anyone who has trouble getting in and out of standard sofas and chairs. These motorized chairs provide comfort while giving users the aid they need to sit down and stand up. However, there are many different models of lift chairs that can all seem perfect for first-time shoppers.
 
At YourCare Medical Supply, we want you to buy the right chair the first time at an affordable price. You can currently take $100 off of the price of one chair or $300 off of two chairs.

Before you take advantage of this cost-effective deal, let’s dive into the most important factors you need to consider to find the right lift chair for your unique needs.

Fit and Size

The comfort of a lift chair hinges on whether or not it is the proper size for its user. If you choose a chair that is too large, your legs may not touch the floor when sitting straight up and your back may not receive the proper support. A chair that’s too small also won’t do any favors to your lower back and you may feel squished when sitting in it. Be sure to pick a lift chair that has a height, seat width and depth, and weight capacity that matches your personal measurements.

Type of Positions

The lift chair positions you need tie into the intended purpose of the chair. Lift chairs can come in “2 Position,” “3 Position,” or “Infinite Positions.” Chairs with “Infinite Positions” have two motors, allowing the footrest to move independently of the chair’s back. These models are great for people who will be spending a lot of time in the chair and need to change positions often to relieve hypertension or improve circulation by putting their feet above their heart. The Golden Relaxer in the Golden Maxi-Comfort line of lift chairs is a great model for these needs.
 
Those who are looking for a lift chair to simply make their relaxation time in front of the television more comfortable could use “2 Position” or “3 Position” chairs. With a single motor in both of these models, the backrest needs to recline in order for the footrest to slide out. The primary difference between the two types is that “3 Position” chairs can fully recline while “2 Position” chairs recline to 45 degrees.

Chair Placement

When your chair is delivered, you don’t want to face the disappointment of it being too big for your living room or bedroom. You can avoid this mistake by considering the dimensions of the space in which you want to place it before purchasing the chair. If you’re working with a tighter space, you can look at models that start against a wall and slide forward without bashing into the wall behind it.

Material Choice

Power lift chairs can be upholstered in a variety of materials and colors. The two main materials you’ll see on lift chairs are cloth and leather. When purchasing your chair, you’ll want to consider which material you’re most comfortable with and best suits your needs. If you’ll need to clean messes or spills off of the chair often, leather may be the best choice. However, you may not want leather if you tend to sweat and will stick to the chair. As for color choice, you can cater your chair’s color to your personal tastes and the design of the space in which it will be going.

Extra Features

Many of the power lift chairs on today’s market come with advanced features to provide even more comfort. These features can include cup holders, heated seats, massage controls, and lift speed variations. Although these features don’t impact the overall function of the chair, people with different aches and pains may find that they make the chair even better for their lifestyle.
 
With these points in mind, you can find the lift chair that’s right for you.
